Amale Andraos is Dean of Columbia University’s Graduate School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation (GSAPP) and co-founder of WORKac, a New-York based architectural and urban practice focused on re-imaging architecture at the intersection of the urban, the rural and the natural.
The practice has achieved international recognition for projects such as the Centre de Conferences in Libreville, Gabon and the Edible Schoolyard at PS216 in Brooklyn, NY. Current projects include the Miami Collage Garage and a residential conversion of a historic New York cast-iron building. WORKac was named the AIA New York State Firm of the Year in 2015.
Prior to Columbia, Andraos taught at universities including Princeton University School of Architecture, Harvard Graduate School of Design and the American University in Beirut. Her publications include Architecture and Representation: The Arab City co-edited with Nora Akawi as well as 49 Cities and Above the Pavement the Farm! co-authored with her partner Dan Wood, FAIA.
Each year we ask East Bay firms to help underwrite the expense of bringing in a renowned architect to Cal. Through the firms’ generosity we are able to present international architects such as Andrea Leers, Fuhimiko Maki, Craig Dykers and Merrill Elam without charging for the lecture. One benefit of sponsorship is attendance at the lecture dinner. The traditional wine reception and dinner precedes Ms. Andrao’s lecture. Dinner guests have reserved seats at the lecture hall–a must for this popular lecture series!
Funds to underwrite the costs of this program are provided by the following 2017 sponsors:
Carol Shen, FAIA
Tolbert Design Architects
